2007 Debate of Definition of Modern Liberals

Indeed, like many I am critical of those who proclaim themselves at a higher moral level than others in order to use that political high-ground to condemn and build their base. I have been concerned that Modern Day Liberals are far removed from the traditional definition of what a Liberal truly is supposed to be. Now if you are a liberal I understand that you disagree with my premise that liberalism is a disease and must be cured or the political correctness could take down our nation. So then, let us debate shall we? Here is the definition of Liberal;

lib’er.al

1. Adjective

a. Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas, free of bigotry.

b. Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded.

Now then, lets look over all the miss spellings, as that is irrelevant to the discussion. In the first item [1(a)] it states; Free from Bigotry. But this is troubling because the bigotry with those that call themselves Liberals is so overwhelming and the amount of hate speech so alarming that this definition does not fit the “modern liberal” in the current paradigm, it simply does not resemble what is happening in the real world.

Therefore those who call themselves Liberals either at not by definition or the definition is irrelevant to the current present period and reality. The Hate Speech is unbelievable and all new ideas are accepted by liberals as long as it agrees with them. If not, then…well just look at the number of words being called of those who do not covet the liberal title.

Next in item [1(b)] it states; “Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded.” Yet in the current social and political discussions those who maintain themselves as liberals do not “Favor Proposals” in fact they often attack them and interestingly enough, they have very few if any proposals for reform themselves instead trump others proposals from an authoritative position and sets of laws, over regulation and political correctness of their choosing.

Additionally on [1(b)] the “modern liberal” is not tolerant of behavior that is not approved first by them. Their selective reading material is indeed anything but broad minded, it is more limited and skewed toward a false Utopia, which has yet to have been built. Perhaps of interest in case you find yourself in debate in 2007.
